Local shop owners offer advice for perfect Valentine's gift

With Valentine's day upon us local shop owners are gearing up for the special day, and offer some insight to help you find the right gift for that special someone.
Vickie Triemer owner of Riverside Gardens says money shouldn't be a factor in picking out the right arrangement.
When picking out the perfect gift, local flower shops are often seen as the best option.   Designs by Sharon owner Sharon Ewing says this is true because of the personalized touch that goes into a custom arrangement. 
Allison Hall of Emporia Floral says another great factor in buying local is the personal interaction with the staff. 
Some individuals often plan out their gifts weeks or months in advance.  However, for those who may be running a little behind Sweet Granada owner Kim Redeker says not to sweat it. 
Shop owners will be open on Valentine's day for last minute orders.  You may find a full list of shop hours and numbers at www.Visitemporia.com
